    FORMULA 1 ROLEX TURKISH GRAND PRIX 2021 - Estambul - Intercity Istanbul Park
    Resultados FP3
    Sábado, 9 de octubre de 2021



    Pierre GASLY ha sido quien ha marcado el mejor tiempo en estos libres que han estado pasados por agua.

    Tras él han finalizado los Red Bull de VERSTAPPEN y de Checo PÉREZ. Tras ellos, los Ferrari de Carlos SAINZ y LECLERC, seguidos por Fernando ALONSO.

    La sesión comenzó con bastante lluvia y con la pista muy mojada, obligando a quienes se decidieron a salir a montar neumáticos de lluvia.

    La lluvia fue bajando de intensidad y la pista fue mejorando mucho, llegando a estar al final casi para montar slicks, aunque nadie lo hizo.

    Muchos pilotos decidieron no rodar a penas, ya que la previsión de lluvia para la calificación es menor que para estos entrenamientos, aunque la previsión de que llueva va aumentando.

    La acumulación de agua en algunas zonas del circuito ha provocado varias salidas de pista y varios trompos, todos sin consecuencias, excepto la salida de pista de RUSSELL que le obligó a abandonar al quedarse atrapado en la puzolana. Eso sí, sin daños ni para él ni para su coche.

    No ha llovido desde los libres 3 y la pista se ha secado algo más pero las posibilidades de que llueva durante la calificación, han aumentado. Del 40% antes de los libres 3, se pasó al 60% al final de los entrenos y ahora dicen que la posibilidad es del 100%.

    Estas son las condiciones a falta de menos de 5 minutos del comienzo de la calicación.

    La pista está delicada y se ven varias salidas de pista y trompos en la vuelta de preparación.

    Verstappen y Carlos han trompeado. Estar esperando en el pit lane y el tráfico han hecho que los neumáticos estén muy frios.

    La lluvia sólo apareció en el inicio de la Q1 y de manera muy ligera y por muy poco tiempo, lo que ha permitido que la pista mejorara mucho.

    El más rápido ha sido Hamilton, a pesar de sus errores y de no montar un segundo juego de neumáticos blandos para hacerlo. Tras él, Verstappen y Gasly.

    Alonso pasa el corte al terminar 8º. Carlos terminó justo detrás, por lo que también pasa a Q2. Ferrari decidirá ahora si sale o no en Q2. Dependerá de si necesitan que le eche una mano a Leclerc para que pase a Q3 dándole algún rebufo.

    La sorpresa es ver a Schumacher pasar el corte y a Ricciardo quedarse fuera.

    Los eliminados en Q1 son:



    16 Ricciardo
    17 Latifi
    18 Giovinazzi
    19 Räikkonen
    20 Mazepin

    De nuevo Hamilton es el más rápido al marcar el mejor tiempo en Q2, seguido por Bottas, Verstappen, Gasly y un gran Alonso.

    En un principio, Carlos no salió, pero Leclerc, debido al trompo que hizo, estaba fuera y salió para darle rebufo en su última vuelta. Finalmente, Lecler pasa a Q1 en 7ª posición.

    Todos los que pasaron el corte lo hicieron con el medio, excepto Tsunoda, que lo hizo con el blando.

    No hay sorpresas esta vez, aunque pesaba que Ocon sí pasaría el corte, y los eliminados en Q2 son:


    11 Vettel
    12 Ocon
    13 Russell
    14 Schumacher
    15 Carlos Sainz (sin tiempo)

    FORMULA 1 ROLEX TURKISH GRAND PRIX 2021 - Estambul - Intercity Istanbul Park
    Resultados Sesión de CALIFICACIÓN
    Sábado, 9 de octubre de 2021



    El más rápido ha sido Lewis HAMILTON, que no logra la pole por sus 10 posiciones de sanción al montar su 4º ICE. Lo que sí se lleva es el récord del circuito al parar el crono en 1:22.868.

    A 130 milésimas ha terminado BOTTAS, que será quien salga desde la pole mañana. Compartirá línea de salida con Max VERSTAPPEN, que intentará ponerse primero en la salida, ya que sabe que el ritmo de los Mercedes es mejor, lo que le complica adelantar a Bottas después de la salida y aguantar a Hamilton cuando llegue a ponerse tras él.

    LECLERC ha sabido superar su error en Q2 y el haber tenido que necesitar de la ayuda de SAINZ, que no tenía previsto salir en Q2, para lograr pasar a Q3 y ha relizado una gran última vuelta para terminar en 4ª posición, lo que le permite mañana salir 3º por la sanción de Hamilton.

    A su lado tendrá a Pierre GASLY, que ha vuelto ha tener un gran sábado.

    Tras él saldrá Fernando ALONSO tras realizar su mejor clasificación del año. El asturiano ha terminado muy contento hoy con su rendimiento y el de su Alpine.

    En la salida tendrá a su lado a Checo PÉREZ, que sigue sin pillarle el punto al Red Bul a una vuelta, en carrera ya es otra historia, pero no puede permitirse quedar siempre tan atrás. Mañana tiene que aguantar detrás a Hamilton sea como sea.

    NORRIS lleva todo el fin de semana bastante discreto. Parece que todavía está dándole vueltas a la victoria perdida en Rusia. Aún así ha terminado 8º por la 16ª posición de RICCIARDO.

    En 9ª posición ha terminado STROLL y tras él TSUNODA, que de los 10 primeros, es el único que montó el blando para pasar a Q3. Mañana, todos los que tendrá delante salen con el medio, así que querrá aprovechar a adelantar en la salida.

    Millones de gracias, Govy
    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    "Alonso has been brilliant all weekend, absolutely brilliant". "A driver not always easyto love, but very easy to admire".

    No hay sanción para Fernando. Los comisarios han comprobado que disminuyó la velocidad tras aparecer la doble bandera amarilla.

    Buena clasi, me hubiera gustado que hubieran caido unas gotillas mas y que el limite entre neumatico de seco e intermedio hubiera estado ahi ahi, la Q1 ha estado muy interesante por eso mismo, parecia que iba a ir a mucho mas.

    No sé cual es la previsión para mañana pero pinta que habrá que estar pegadito a la TV.

    Notas de los equipos después de la sesión de Clasificación:



    Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Mercedes

    Lewis put on a commanding display on Saturday in Istanbul, finishing P1 in all three qualifying sessions but will incur a grid penalty for tomorrow's Grand Prix as a result of changing his internal combustion engine (ICE).


    A strong performance from Valtteri saw him finish Q3 just 0.1s behind his teammate to go second quickest in what would have been a front-row lockout. He will inherit pole position for tomorrow's race, which both drivers will start on the Medium compound tyre.


    Yet again this season, changeable weather conditions and rain showers made tyre selection and the timing of runs extremely difficult for all teams.


    Valtteri's pole position moves him level with fellow Finn Kimi Räikkönen on 18.


    Lewis Hamilton: It's so good to be back in Turkey, last year was an unbelievable visit here for myself and the Team! Coming back, the track is completely different - the grip level we've got now is absolutely awesome. The session today was really tricky because there were still some damp patches and getting temperature into the tyres for the first lap wasn't easy. But it was a really, really great job by the Team, they got us out at the right time and put in a great performance. Tomorrow is going to be difficult, but I'll give it everything! Overtaking isn't the easiest at the moment and we're all on the same tyre so I imagine tomorrow is going to be difficult to move up. We've got the long straight down the back so we'll see what we can do. Hopefully we can give the fans here a good race!


    Valtteri Bottas: Today was a good Quali - not easy conditions, especially in Q1 which was on the edge with the damp parts and still in Q3 there were damp sections but I put together some good laps! On the final lap, I missed a little in the last sector with some understeer but other than that, the lap was really nice. I enjoyed it and obviously as a team result, today was pretty ideal.


    Max is starting next to me and the Ferrari has looked strong this weekend, so it'll be a tough race but we'll give it our all. We have a good race car, I just need to keep the focus on my own race, avoid mistakes and stay ahead. Strategy will always play a part but I'm feeling confident and looking forward to the start and getting the job done.


    Toto Wolff: The big positive today is that the car is very quick and Valtteri starts on pole tomorrow, but the negative is that it would have otherwise been a weekend with a front-row lockout for the team. Progress will be tough for Lewis with all cars in front of him other than Tsunoda starting on the Medium tyre and yesterday in the long-run we could see that it's difficult to follow here. But Lewis has made phenomenal recovery drives time and time again, and there's no one else you'd want in the car. Strategy will play a big part and we'll be there to support him. Valtteri has been strong all weekend and he has got a great opportunity tomorrow. He clearly wants the win and it will also help Lewis so he'll be going all-out for it.


    Andrew Shovlin: A great job by the team and drivers on a front row qualifying and well done to Lewis on getting P1 today. That was close to the perfect result for us; not quite perfect as we'd have preferred Lewis to be on the Hard tyre for the start tomorrow but that felt like we'd have been taking too much of a risk getting through to the final session given the tricky conditions. Lewis drops back with his engine penalty but it's great that Valtteri inherits pole; he's been on strong form recently and has everything to play for with nothing to lose tomorrow. It's going to be interesting to see how the car and tyres perform tomorrow. Clearly everyone is wary of the Soft tyre and most have kept their options open for the race as far as tyre choice is concerned. Our long runs were looking good on Friday, both in terms of pace and degradation so hopefully we can achieve our goals. It's going to quite a challenge for Lewis to fight through without a tyre advantage. There are some strong cars in that midfield pack and Sergio won't be doing him any favours but we've seen brilliant recovery drives from Lewis in Imola, Silverstone and Budapest so hopefully he can make it happen once again.

    Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Red Bull

    Max Verstappen: "I am of course happy with third and starting on the front row tomorrow. We improved a little bit from yesterday and the balance is a bit better but overall this weekend has been a bit more difficult. I hope for a clean get away tomorrow but starting on the inside will be tricky, as there is very low grip in both dry and wet conditions compared to the outside, so we are expecting to lose out there slightly. We also need to consider the gap behind us, it's much tighter than usual. We'll aim to make the best of it and try everything we can tomorrow to keep the Mercedes behind but it's not going to be easy, they've had great pace all weekend."


    Sergio Perez: "We are showing good progress and I think we should be able to continue that into race day. With the mixed conditions in Q1 we lost a set of new softs, meaning we only had one set for Q3. We did a banker lap on the used softs which was a decent time and then we didn't manage to improve as much as we wanted to on the second run, which meant we didn't get the lap time we were looking for. I am feeling positive and I am looking forward to trying to get through the grid and score some good points for the Team. It is a pretty long race around here, overtaking is possible and the tyre degradation will be pretty high out there, so there is everything to play for. I believe if we can get a good clean run into turn one then we will be looking good for the rest of the race and a podium could be possible. We are up for the challenge; we have good strategy and pace."


    Christian Horner: "The guys have made a good recovery overnight and fixed some issues we needed to work out. I think the whole engineering Team, both trackside and back at the factory in Milton Keynes, have done a great job to make the progress that we have, hopefully that puts us in better shape for tomorrow. With Max qualifying in third, but starting the race from second, it's going to be vital he gets a good start and tries to get ahead of Bottas early on as Lewis has looked the quickest he's been all year so far around here, so he's going to be coming through pretty quickly. Checo's times on the scrub tyre and the medium tyre were strong, it was just that last run on the new set of softs that didn't come together. The strategy we've picked tomorrow for him should see him be able to make good progress. We think we can be closer to Mercedes tomorrow than we were in qualifying, so we've got to get our heads down, keep plugging away, get the strategy right and try to capitalise by getting the maximum points we can for both drivers."


    https://www.pitpass.com/70946/Turkis...notes-Red-Bull


    Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - McLaren

    Lando Norris: "A tough day with tricky conditions. We were just lacking pace today, so it was very tough to achieve a lot more than what we did. There was a slim possibility we could've got P7 but even [Sergio] Pérez was quite a bit quicker than us. Not the result we wanted, but I think it was the best result we could really achieve, so we'll try again tomorrow and see if we can do better."


    Daniel Ricciardo: "Obviously not where we want to be. The track was steadily drying and everyone just kept improving a chunk on that last lap. We didn't make as big a step on that second set of Softs, and we've found it tricky with the Soft most of the weekend so it's just unfortunate to be so far down the grid. We'll find a way to come back tomorrow and try to understand the Soft tyre a bit better. It was probably also a bit of timing, we got quite a few yellow flags in Turn One which put us out of sync early. But I've already moved on from it, so now we'll put our head down for the race tomorrow."


    Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "A challenging qualifying session for us today with a disappointing outcome, despite working hard overnight to unlock more performance from the car. We haven't made a large step forward on performance and that meant we struggled for pace today - especially on the Soft tyres. That resulted in an early end to Daniel's session, qualifying P16, and Lando, after getting through to Q3 on the Medium tyre, qualified P8 and will start P7. Tomorrow is another day, we're expecting dry conditions and will work hard again this evening to see if we can unlock a little more performance in race trim, with the aim of moving both cars forwards."


    https://www.pitpass.com/70948/Turkis...-notes-McLaren




    Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Aston Martin

    Lance Stroll: "After practice yesterday, we made some helpful changes to the car overnight and I think that showed in our performance today. Overall, I am satisfied and it was a good effort. I had a small off during my final run in Q2, but my previous lap was strong enough to make it into Q3. Tomorrow, we will be starting the race from eighth on the Medium tyre, which should put us in a good position for the opening stint. There are a few quick cars out of position on the grid - because of the conditions and various grid penalties - so we will have to capitalise on that, fight until the end, and push every lap to see where we end up."


    Sebastian Vettel: "The conditions today were always improving and, although the track was mostly dry, there were still some damp areas where I struggled. It was not easy to find a rhythm. I lost most of my lap time in those damp areas, especially in Turn One. After that, it was difficult to make up the deficit on the remainder of the lap. I think we had more pace in the car today so I am not happy to qualify 11th, but starting from 10th means we have a good opportunity to fight for points tomorrow."


    Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "On a drying track Sebastian narrowly failed to get through to Q3, missing out by just 0.153sec. He will start tomorrow's race from P10 [because his P11 will become P10 as a result of fastest qualifier Lewis Hamilton's 10-place grid penalty], from which grid slot he will be aiming to move up to a points-scoring position. Lance was ninth in Q2, moving smoothly through to Q3 therefore, and repeated ninth in Q3 [net P8], from where he too will be aiming for a good points finish tomorrow."


    https://www.pitpass.com/70941/Turkis...s-Aston-Martin


    Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Alpine

    Alpine F1 Team will start tomorrow's Turkish Grand Prix with Fernando Alonso fifth and Esteban Ocon twelfth on the grid after a hard-fought Qualifying at Istanbul Park.


    Fernando reached Q3 for the second time in as many races and qualified in sixth place with Esteban in twelfth after narrowly missing out on the top ten. Fernando moves up a spot on the grid to fifth as a result of Lewis Hamilton's grid penalty, meaning his best starting position since the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix. Esteban will occupy the sixth row of the grid for tomorrow's 58-lap race with the seven-time world champion.


    After a wet Free Practice 3 on the outskirts of Istanbul, conditions dried ahead of Qualifying at 15:00 local time. The threat of rain continued right up until the start of the session as all cars looked to set a lap-time as early in Q1 as possible. Both Esteban and Fernando were comfortable throughout and, on their second runs on Softs (C4), both drivers improved their lap-time to advance into Q2.


    In the second segment of Qualifying, both drivers ran new Mediums (C3) along with all but three cars in the field. Fernando knocked on the door of the top three and progressed to Q3 on a 1min 23.914secs. Esteban was in a tight battle for the top ten and was forced to abort his second run on Mediums with traffic and fell short of reaching the top ten shootout.


    Esteban Ocon: "It's disappointing not to be in the top ten today as we probably had the pace to be there. Unfortunately, I had to abort my Q2 lap due to traffic and I wasn't able to complete the lap. It would have been close to reaching Q3, but it happens like that sometimes. We're fighting some inconsistencies with the car at the moment, which we're working hard to fix. We'll keep working as a team to progress and get on top of it.

    Our focus is immediately on what we can do tomorrow, and the aim is to try and work our way back to the points."


    Fernando Alonso: "It felt good today and I am happy with the result. The car felt fast, and I think we made the correct choice on which tyres to use in all of the sessions. We were also fast enough to qualify on the Medium tyres in Q2, which was a nice luxury to have! We seem competitive so I think we have a good chance to score points tomorrow.

    Let's see if we can keep the pace with those around us. I think strategy will be key, as we saw tyre graining was quite high in dry conditions. We'll be looking at the weather forecast and take it step by step."


    Davide Brivio, Racing Director: "It was a tricky session with the weather and the possibility of rain during Q1, so we wanted to get out early and complete a lap time for both cars. It never really rained heavily enough to have a big impact, but it was nevertheless very challenging conditions for the drivers and for the Team. Fernando did extremely well today and will start fifth tomorrow with Lewis' [Hamilton] penalty, so that is a good result for us. Unfortunately, Esteban couldn't improve on his final attempt in Q2 meaning he starts in twelfth place. He will have a free tyre choice tomorrow, so let's see if it can be an opportunity and we'll try to recover some places for him and target a top ten finish. The car has shown some good potential this weekend, so let's see what we can do tomorrow when it all counts."


    https://www.pitpass.com/70944/Turkis...m-notes-Alpine


    Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Ferrari

    Scuderia Ferrari did well in qualifying for the Turkish Grand Prix. Charles secured a spot on the second row thanks to a great last lap in Q3, when he set the fourth fastest time in 1'23"265. It means he starts ahead of all the team's direct rivals in the Constructors' battle.


    It was an exciting 60 minutes with rain falling for a good part of Q1, rendering conditions tricky for the rest of the sessions. Everyone in the team, the drivers, those on the pit wall and in the garage, did an impeccable job making the most of every opportunity. Carlos Sainz played a very important role even though he was always going to start from the back of the grid having changed his PU. He thus did all he could to help the team, firstly by getting into Q2 and eliminating one of the main rivals in the Constructors' battle and then by giving Charles a tow on his final run in Q2.


    It looks like being a very busy race tomorrow. Charles starts from third on the grid with a chance of an excellent result. Carlos will be hoping to fight his way up the order from the back row, but the thought of the fight is no doubt an extra motivation. One unknown for both drivers is how the tyres will behave over a long run, an area in which there is still a lot of work to do.


    Charles Leclerc: I am happy with my qualifying. P4 is a good result for the team, finishing just behind the championship leaders who, at the moment, are still tough for us to beat. We definitely maximised our car's potential today.


    Q1 and Q2 were tricky for me, as I opted for a lower downforce set-up this weekend which is the right choice for the race and hopefully should pay off tomorrow. But in today's wet conditions, I slid around quite a bit and had to fight for it.


    It was great to see Carlos being there and giving me the slipstream on the final straight in Q2. It was good teamwork and helped us make it to Q3. I am happy with my final lap in the last session and look forward to the race. If the conditions are dry, I am confident that we have good potential.


    Carlos Sainz: It was a pity we were not trying for a fastest time, especially seeing the performance of the car in dry conditions. It is difficult to take, but looking at the big picture it is better to take the penalty now and have a better engine for the remainder of the season.


    Our plan was executed perfectly today. In Q1 we took calculated risks to make it comfortably into Q2, bumping one car out which turned out to be a McLaren. Then in Q2 I stayed in the garage and went out on a perfectly timed strategy to help Charles with a bit of a slipstream on his Mediums.


    For tomorrow, it all depends on how the car feels in traffic and how we can go through the field without damaging the tyres too much. The pace has been encouraging all weekend so we are ready to fight our way up the order as much as possible. Bring it on!


    Laurent Mekies: It was a hectic and closely fought qualifying session and the result shows we did a good job of preparing for this Grand Prix. It wasn't easy managing all the variables today, starting with the weather and the choices to be made in terms of levels of aero downforce, especially for Charles. He did a great job, keeping calm even when the situation looked complicated and then he pulled it out of the bag in the end with a wonderful lap. Carlos showed great team spirit, yesterday getting on with a different but useful programme which we hope will pay off tomorrow and today he also played his part when the need arose.


    We are well aware the points are given out tomorrow and that tyre management will be very difficult in the race, but we will do our best as always.

    Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - AlphaTauri

    Pierre Gasly: "I'm very happy to have qualified fifth today, and then to be starting P4 tomorrow after Lewis' penalty. The team have made such a big improvement to the car since yesterday, as I was really struggling with understeer. It wasn't the easiest to see if these changes had worked this morning, as FP3 was wet, but as soon as we got to Qualifying, I was competitive and that was really positive. I'm confident heading into tomorrow's race after the big step-up we've made with the car today and I'm hopeful we can score big points in the race."


    Yuki Tsunoda: "I have to say I'm still slightly disappointed with my performance today, I really believe that the pace of the car was there, and I could've been starting tomorrow further up the grid. The team did a fantastic job but unfortunately, I just couldn't put it all together in Q3. I'll be starting tomorrow's race on the Softs, which is a different strategy to most of the other cars around me, so I'll have to prepare tonight and take every opportunity I can tomorrow. It's still positive to qualify in the top 10, the main goal for me this weekend is to finish in the points, and I hope that tomorrow I can do that from a strong starting position."


    Jonathan Eddolls (Chief Race Engineer): "Following FP2 we made some big changes to the car to improve the balance, as both drivers were continuing to struggle with this in yesterday's afternoon session. Due to FP3 being wet, we didn't get the opportunity to try our dry settings ahead of Qualifying, but we saw that these still worked well in those conditions, which was positive ahead of Quali. We used the session to complete some further tests to increase our understanding of the tyres on a wet track and we also continued to show the good pace we have here this weekend. Heading into Quali, we decided to use a slightly different tyre plan with each driver. We wanted Yuki to get the highest possible starting position, so we gave him an additional set of Softs, whereas for Pierre we aimed to optimise his race strategy by using just the Mediums in Q2. Pierre managed to maximise every lap and had a fantastic Saturday afternoon, it's a shame to be so close to P4 but the improvements we've made overnight to minimise the gap to Leclerc have worked really well. Likewise, Yuki has really made a step up this weekend and it's great to see him back in Q3. The whole team has done some great work so far to have both cars starting in the top 10 tomorrow."

    Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Alfa Romeo

    Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN had a challenging day in Istanbul as Antonio Giovinazzi and Kimi Raikkonen qualified in P18 and P19 respectively for the 2021 Turkish Grand Prix.

    On a damp track after this morning's persistent rain, the Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN team couldn't turn their pace into positions and saw both drivers bow out of the session after Q1.


    Both Antonio and Kimi will make up at least a place owing to penalties to other drivers, and will aim to make up ground in tomorrow's race.


    Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "It's obviously disappointing not to turn what had started as a promising day into a good qualifying result. We had looked strong in the rain in FP3, but when it came to this afternoon, we weren't able to put together the laps we needed. We need to regroup and recapture the form we had earlier in the weekend ahead of tomorrow: it's a long race and the conditions are still an unknown, so we could have a good chance to make up ground and come home with a good result."


    Kimi Raikkonen: "We were pretty good in the rain this morning, so it's a shame not to make it past Q1 today. We tried our best but we couldn't really put the laps together. When we finally got the right grip at the end of the session, we were stuck behind another car and that was it. A lot of small things went wrong today, so let's focus on tomorrow. Hopefully we will have some changeable conditions and a bit of chaos to help us make up places."


    Antonio Giovinazzi: "We looked ok coming into qualifying, but we didn't put everything together when we had to. The conditions were difficult, some parts of the track were drying but others rather wet: in the end, it is what it is and we need to work to make it better for the race. It's only Saturday, we race tomorrow and we will give our best. Our race pace was not too bad: if we have a good first lap, we can have our say."

    Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Haas

    Uralkali Haas F1 Team drivers Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin qualified 14th and 20th, respectively, for Sunday's Turkish Grand Prix, Round 16 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship at Intercity Istanbul Park.


    Nikita Mazepin exited qualifying in P20 after Q1 - the opening knockout round, while teammate Mick Schumacher progressed to Q2 courtesy of P14 in a frantic session. With the threat of rain imminent, little time was wasted and both Schumacher and Mazepin successfully ran three new sets of Pirelli P Zero Red soft tires in Q1.


    Track conditions remained tricky after the earlier rain shower which blighted final practice. Schumacher set his best lap of 1:25.555 on his final tour - moving on to Q2 for the second time in his rookie year in P14. Mazepin's last lap was his quickest, a 1:28.449 to place 20th overall - however, the Russian will start P19 on the grid with Scuderia Ferrari's Carlos Sainz starting last following a grid penalty for a PU change.


    Schumacher joined the top 15 competing in Q2, the German setting a fastest lap of 1:25.200 to secure P14 on the timesheets - equaling his highest grid start of the season from the Russian Grand Prix.


    Nikita Mazepin: "I went out there and obviously the grip was good enough on most of the track for the slick tires but Turn 1 caught me out so we boxed from that set and then I wasn't really sure where to push, how to push. In these conditions I was caught out as we expected the rain to come so I had two laps to do, but obviously the rain didn't come. I needed to do a lap and I did a lap, but it wasn't good enough today."


    Mick Schumacher: "Those tricky conditions were fun to drive, I enjoyed it and I think we as a team took the right decisions at the right time. We analyzed it properly, we went through all the steps we usually do and found the right set-up for the right conditions. It's gone well from FP1, it's been a nice feeling on track in the car so I'm happy. We got to drive, show our performance and I think maybe we even had a tenth or two in there. Tomorrow, hopefully we're able to keep the position or even be a bit further forward."


    Guenther Steiner: "All in all, a good day for the team today with getting Mick into Q2 and participating in it, unlike last time where he couldn't. He shows with hard work - even if your car is not as good - you can still achieve results. Everyone did a great job, Mick driving and the team making no mistakes in a difficult situation with the rain coming and going, everything was done right. For Nikita, we tried our best but he just doesn't get along with Turn 1 here. When he was on a fast lap, his time was disallowed because of exceeding track limits in Turn 1 so he couldn't get a complete lap in. The team did a good job today and what more can you wish for at the moment."

    Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Williams

    George Russell qualified 13th and Nicholas Latifi 17th for the Turkish Grand Prix. George reached Q2 using the soft Pirelli tyre, setting a best lap time of 1:25.417 in Q1.


    Nicholas recorded his fastest lap, a 1:26.086, on his final effort of Q1 using the soft tyre but unfortunately missed out on progressing to Q2. On his final flying lap in Q2 using the medium tyre, George looked set to progress to Q3 but lost time running wide in the final corner and failed to improve on his best time of a 1:25.007.


    Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Both drivers showed excellent pace today in tricky conditions, but both were unlucky at key moments. The rain held off longer than we expected at the start of Q1, but we adapted and were in decent positions. George was able to improve and make Q2 but for Nicky, a small mistake at T1 cost him his first effort and we then had to decide whether to push again or prepare for a final push lap. We opted to push again but with conditions improving, other cars had the opportunity to better his time and unfortunately, he missed out.


    In Q2, we opted for a strategy similar to Austria and George was on an excellent lap on the Option tyre when a small mistake at the last corner robbed him of a certain place in Q3.


    The car has worked well this weekend and we made some good decisions today, but the margins for error are so small in Formula One, that we are left frustrated by the end result. More rain is expected overnight and so there are likely to be further opportunities tomorrow when we hope to enjoy some better luck.


    George Russell: There were too many mistakes on my side today. At the end of Q2, I was on a really strong lap which would have easily been good enough to get us through to Q3. I unfortunately lost all the time in the last corner which is a big shame as the lap up to that point was incredible. I'm really trying to push the boundaries at the moment, but I went over it today and it's not good enough from my side. The conditions weren't easy but it's the same for everybody and I expect more from myself.


    It's going to be an interesting race tomorrow as the green track means that nobody knows for sure what the right strategy is going to be and how the tyres are going to perform. Unfortunately, it's now going to be much harder for us starting from 13th rather than inside in the top 10, so it's frustrating.


    Nicholas Latifi: The car was feeling decent and the track conditions were quite changeable, with the rain starting and stopping, so it was about being on the track at the right moment and setting a lap when it mattered. Every time I was doing a lap, it was consistently putting me in the top 15. But on the last two laps, when the track was at its driest, we didn't execute it. It's very frustrating as the performance has been good enough to progress into Q2 in the last few races.

    Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Pirelli

    The pole position lap was set by Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton, using the soft C4 tyre to beat last year's pole (set in wet weather) by 25 seconds and break the Istanbul Park track record that he set yesterday. With Hamilton dropping out of the top 10 tomorrow due to an engine change penalty, pole position effectively belongs to his team mate Valtteri Bottas, who qualified second.


    The weather was one of the main influences on the action today, with drivers jockeying for position in Q1 to set a banker time, after heavy rain was predicted shortly after the beginning of qualifying. This never materialised although conditions remained humid and cool, with the session getting underway in ambient temperatures of 20 degrees ambient and 23 degrees on track. The Mercedes duo were the only drivers to get through Q1 on just one set of soft tyres.


    The drivers all ran the soft tyre in Q1 and Q3, but the P Zero Yellow medium was seen in Q2: which dictates the tyres the top 10 on the grid use for the race start. All 15 drivers in Q2 set their best time on the medium compound, with the exception of Alpha Tauri's Yuki Tsunoda and Haas driver Mick Schumacher. Only Tsunoda managed to get in the top 10, so he will be the sole driver who qualified in the front half of the grid to start on the soft. Tsunoda was also the only driver to run the medium in the first part of Q3.
    The FP3 session in the morning was held in wet conditions from start to finish, with the drivers running the Cinturato full wets and intermediates.


    The fastest way to approach the 58-lap Turkish Grand Prix is a two-stopper, with one stint on the P Zero Yellow medium and two on the P Zero White hard. This is because two stops minimise graining and wear, allowing drivers to push harder during shorter stints.


    Next-quickest is a one-stopper, going from the medium to the hard (and the next-fastest strategy after that involves doing two stints on the medium and one on the hard). So the nine drivers who got through Q2 on the medium tyre, and will therefore start the race on this compound tomorrow, have a few options available to them (depending on which tyres they have available).


    However, a more aggressive two-stop 'sprint' strategy using the P Zero Red soft tyre to start the race might also pay off under the right circumstances - so the strategy is finely balanced. Those starting on the soft tyre will need to stop relatively soon into the race due to the high wear rates on this compound (also because of the pressure-washed track surface) but after that they also have options.


    The pit stop time loss penalty in Turkey is one of the lowest of the year at 20 seconds, which works in favour of a two-stopper: especially if it turns into an eventful race.


    Mario Isola: "The rain had the effect of re-setting the track, but even in the wet conditions of free practice, the drivers reported a lot more grip compared to last year. The drivers then got to grips with the rapidly-evolving track on slicks again during qualifying, with nearly all of them choosing the medium for Q2. A two-stopper using the medium for one stint and the hard for two stints is on paper the fastest strategy tomorrow, but a medium-hard one-stopper or a 'sprint' strategy using the soft can't be discounted either, so there are some interesting possibilities. The weather will also have a part to play, with the risk of rain still present. If this turns out to be the case, the wet running in FP3 will have been extremely valuable. The crossover points between both wets and intermediates as well as intermediates and slicks are lower than other tracks, and this will have an influence on strategies in changeable conditions."

    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.
